Abraham’s chief of staff seeks Louisiana congressional seat



BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Republican U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham’s chief of staff has entered the race for Louisiana’s 5th District congressional seat.

Luke Letlow announced his campaign Monday, only weeks after Abraham announced he wouldn’t seek reelection to the seat representing northeast and central Louisiana.

Letlow is a Republican from the tiny town of Start.

He launched his campaign for the Nov. 3 election with a nearly two-minute introductory digital ad.

The ad highlights Letlow’s deep roots in rural Richland Parish, his background working for Abraham and his support for President Donald Trump.

Abraham immediately announced his endorsement of Letlow.

Letlow is the fourth candidate to enter the race so far.
